Fun Times at the Nordic Winter Festival
Prince George, B.C. – Put some fun in front of a kid and there’s a pretty good chance they’ll have some.
That was the case Sunday as kids young and young at heart gathered for the Nordic Winter Festival at the Otway Nordic Centre. Hundreds of people, including many families, turned out in perfect weather conditions to take advantage of a full day of sports hosted by the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club.
There was a pancake breakfast, Chocolate Races (in which every entrant receives a chocolate bar upon completion of the race), introductory ski lessons and plenty of instruction and assistance from qualified Nordic ski instructors, free waxing demos, opportunities to try out the Biathlon event and other activities as well.
The Piston Bully was on hand in the afternoon and there was an opportunity to talk with the Head Groomer and get a tour of the machine.
Just in case anyone felt a chill or hunger on a sunny Sunday, hot dogs and hot chocolate were available by donation.
